lanews529 Saturday: LA News and Ed Blammo at Medusa

This Saturday head to Medusa for special guest L.A. News with Blam City resident Ed Blammo for new disco, 80′s boogie, electro & dreamwave.  Never heard of LA News?

LA News is a DJ/Producing duo formed in Los Angeles in 2008 consisting of long time friends Mike Venneri and Dustin Torres. Originally formed as a means to bring their favorite up and coming Los Angeles dance music to the masses, LA News has gone on to play out live and produce original songs and remixes. Their debut mix entitled “Rolls Royce’n” was a big hit in the local LA scene and their follow up mix albums “10 & 12 O’clock” have gone on to receive critical acclaim by some big names, enabling them to play sets with Binary records at some high profile gigs in LA

Grab the 12′Oclock mix below and the 10 O’clock mix right here.
